Hardwick Clothing, America’s oldest suit maker, announced that they are yanking commercials during NFL games after players either divisively sat or cowardly hid in the locker room to avoid making a “political statement,” even though the National Anthem has nothing to do with politics.
“Effective immediately, please remove all commercials for Check into Cash, Buy Here Pay Here USA, or U.S. Money Shops from airing during NFL games this entire season,” the CEO of Hardwick, Allan Jones, said in a statement to the Tombras group, an ad agency. “Our companies will not condone in any form the unpatriotic behavior demonstrated by the NFL,” the businessman said.
Allan Jones also bashed anti-cop, communist Castro-loving unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who started the anti-American protests in 2016:
“When I see Colin Kaepernick lecturing the “oppressed” wearing a Fidel Castro T-shirt you realize the hypocrisy to this stupidity. I love America. They have the right to protest and I have the right to turn off the channel and place our ads elsewhere. The next time someone ask the public to finance a stadium this will have a very longterm effect. These guys should really be the lead plaintiffs in the head injury cases–that’s the only jury that will find sympathy!
If you will research why Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner you will realize why I am upset about these NFL players protesting. They don’t even know what it is they are protesting.
The flag was still standing. 200 English ships tried to take it down. They kept it up all night and it could only be seen when the bombs were bursting in the air. So many patriots gave their lives to keep the flag up – and now to have people protesting who don’t have a clue about any of this bothers me.
Please research Key’s motivation for writing his famous song and you will see why I’m upset that the protesters don’t have a clue.
Our companies will not condone unpatriotic behavior!
TAKING A STAND… NOT A KNEE!”

As Mike Rowe pointed out (I’m paraphrasing), the fans will ultimately decide what happens in regards to the NFL disrespecting the American Flag and the National Anthem.
While that is true, also equally true is that when advertising — the NFL’s real gravy train that funds not only the league but also the networks that broadcast the games — start pulling the plug, you can bet that players will soon be acting like patriotic, pro-American Tea Party members — at least on the field.
